ABOUT THIS SESSION:
Building process skills is a big challenge for any organization; Forrester heard that loud and clear when we interviewed 28 large enterprises about their biggest process issues. The skills gap even holds back large-scale business process management (BPM) initiatives in some organizations, and software vendors have jumped into skills-building to expedite closing sales. There’s plenty you can do to build process expertise at your organization— from the senior process executive down to the business analyst. In this session will walk you through case studies and best practices to make business process improvement skills development and BPM centers of excellence a reality in your organization. Once having built skills, the next challenge is to scale process transformation from a single project to a strategic program. This session will explore how real-world companies have moved from isolated continuous improvement projects to a strategic program that implements BPM on a wide scale basis. By tackling the skills issue and the project –to-program issues head on, organizations can move into true business transformation.
